I wear Dickies too. Try using a fabric softner, like Downy. Works well.

Shorts all the way...

Pants are for sissy's, who are worried about rocks and other projectiles being flung at them.... Seriously, I'd rather deal with the beating than the sweating...Although those black "lava" rocks hurt like the devil...

Dark green work pants. Used to but from WearGuard but found the exact same stuff way cheaper at Triple Crown Products.
The dark green does not show the grass stains much.

Regular shorts or clam-diggers. Long pants are way too hot. I'd rather be comfortable while I work.

I would rather wear shorts than pants. I get to hot wearing pants. My legs don't get bruised by wearing shorts they just get dirty.
